Why We Built The Slickrock Pant

When the weather takes a turn for the worse we make sure not to miss a ride by slipping on the Slickrock Pant. We built these with lightweight weather protection and just enough warmth to keep us moving through the shoulder seasons.

  • Reliably mobile and warm biking pants ready for cold rides
  • 4-way stretch fabric wicks moisture while keeping you moving
  • DWR treatment causes light precipitation to bead up on surface
  • Thigh vents help you dump excess heat when the sun starts to pop
  • Zippered ankle lets you slip these on over your bike shoes
  • Reflective details boost visibility around dawn and dusk
  • Silicone gripper hem and articulation ensures reliable coverage

How to Measure:
For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.

These pants are fantastic. Perfect layer for cooler temps, but lighter weight than what I had expected. Thigh vents, ankle zippers, pockets, etc. all thoughtfully designed and well-executed. Thanks, Backcountry!

I'm really impressed by these pants, they are exactly what I was looking for in a cool weather riding pant. Fit is dialed, fabric is nice, I like the vents on the outer thigh, and I like the small zip adjustment on the ankle cuff. The waist closure is simple and low profile and the single adjustment on the right hip has kept the pants right where they need to be on several early season trail rides. These are my first purchase of any Backcountry branded product and I am pleasantly surprised at the quality and everything they got right with these.

They look good on the website

I ordered these because they looked really good on the website and were reasonably priced. I was super excited for them to come and when they finally did I ripped open the box and went to try them on. Now, I’ll preface this with that I’m 5’11”, 175 lbs, with an athletic build. I normall;y wear a 31x32 in pants. For these, i ordered mediums. As I pulled them on I thought they felt a little tight in the legs. Then I snapped them close and went to look in the mirror... These have a XC fit to them. You could maybe fit a super minimalist knee pad under the pant, but even then it would be tricky. I ordered these to be my trail and enduro pants in the winter and spring, when I would have knee pads underneath. needless to say, they got returned due to the tight legs. I think that if you have extremely skinny legs, and not monstrous quadrzillas, these might work for you. The over all finish of the pants was nice, BC just has some work to do and should take some notes from other MTB clothing manufacturers on pant fit.


Will these fit over/accommodate a pair of knee pads? Looking pretty slim in the knee area.

Hey Patick, These will accommodate the most low-profile protection. They were not designed to be worn along with knee pads. Thank you for the comment, this will help us design the next pair!
